How has winning the award helped your career?
Considering I’ve decided to continue my research as a PhD student, I’ve not yet had the opportunity to really reap the rewards of having been named the Young Scottish Software Engineer of the Year 2015: I had secured my PhD placement before the results had been announced. That being said, those who have seen my latest CV have been mostly impressed by the YSE award, so I reckon once I finish my studies,
this particular achievement will help me land the job I’ve always wanted.
Where have you worked since winning the award?
I’ve been working as a teaching assistant for a couple of game development modules at Abertay but I’m focused full-time on my PhD research.
